In 1959 my parents had their only weekend away from kids. They stayed at the Ester Lee and every time we passed it in my childhood, they would always say, "that was such a nice place. We'll have to go back someday." They never did nor did I until last weekend. I think now, with much regret, of all the times I COULD have stayed at the Ester Lee, yet bypassed it. Our weekend was one of the best (if not the best) experiences we've had on the coast. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated. No, there aren't fancy amenities. And, yes, the television was teeny. But, y'know what? You're in a beautiful location and ought not be inside watching television! Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable; we left the window open all night to hear the sound of the surf and enjoyed coffee watching kids and dogs playing on the sand early in the morning. What a delightful find this was! We'll definitely be back!
